Reader Engagement

This global measure uses regression analysis to combine the four measures below. It reflects everything from the average length of paragraphs to the rate of select vivid verbs.

Icon Blue

Concise and Readable

This is a modern take on traditional readability measures like Flesch scores. It looks mostly at word and sentence length and variation, but it also considers wording patterns common in especially readable writing.

Flowing and Cohesive

This measure has the closest links to elite legal, judicial, and journalistic writing. It considers transitions, modifier use, patterns at the ends of sentences, and many other proprietary data points.

Crisp and Punchy

This measure rewards both including punchy words and phrases and avoiding wordy or cumbersome ones.

Clear and Direct
